The top trends from London Fashion Week 2019
In collaboration with D.A.Y boutique
From 90’s cargo, bucket hats to cowboy boots, stylish boutique D.A.Y in Peckham is all over the hot new trends to come out of London Fashion Week 2019. Listen up, as stylist Disha from D.A.Y picks out her top trends for spring/summer 2020.
Headwear: Bucket hats and caps
Bad hair day? Cover it with a hat! Yes, casual hats are in. Old-school headgear like caps and bucket hats will be the go-to piece next Spring. Think casual cap to accessorise an evening gown or boys team your cap with a smart shirt (or suit if you’re feeling bold), it’s all about wearing the cap in a less conventional way. Alongside caps, you will see the return of the bucket hat. Yep, this trend is not going anywhere. By the end of the 90’s almost everyone was rocking a bucket hat (Britney Spears circa 1997 anyone?) and now it is back on the runway as seen on the Emporio Armani catwalk. Girls, the bucket hat looks equally great worn with a swimsuit or worn with jeans, sandals and a khaki utility jacket and boys (it’s time to channel your inner Gallagher) bucket hats and denim jackets make the perfect combo. For a splash of colour opt for a pastel yellow shade like the one above from Mads Norgaard.
Layered & oversized
Oversized tiered dresses have been dominating the spring 2020 runways - and we can see why. These dresses are super easy to style, you can literally wear them with anything. Chuck on a pair of Superga pumps and you have the perfect day time outfit, or team with chunky wedges and a cute headband to transform your look from day to night. It’s also the perfect dress to take you into Autumn, just add a thin-knit roll neck underneath. Layered dresses are the optimum of comfort and chic, make sure you have at least one in your spring/summer wardrobe edit.
Boxy, wide-cut bowling shirts, once a staple of the middle-aged man has had a stylish revamp. Bowling shirts are characterised as being loose, straight cut, short sleeve shirts with a one-piece collar. They are super easy to style and will provide a fresh twist on the summer-short sleeve shirt. This old school classic shirt looks great buttoned-down and teamed with city shorts or chinos. Designers such as ovadia & sons paired simple style bowling shirts with clashing prints whilst we saw other designers experiment with loud pattern and graphics for their take on the retro shirt. We just love this featured patchwork print -style bowling shirt from Selected Homme!
Candy floss pink is primed for a comeback
We’re totally eyeing up anything candy floss pink. It looks like candy floss pink is primed for a comeback if Valentino, Emilio Wickstead and Zimmerman shows are anything to go by. This soft hue is very much a genderless colour. Like everything else, we shouldn’t be putting labels on colours. Candy floss pinks works across both menswear and womenswear - a flattering colour that makes for the perfect shirt and denim short combo. Boys, this Samsøe Samsøe pink shirt is super stylish paired with white pumps however, girls, this could also be worn as the ultimate boyfriend shirt for spring next year (bf’s watch out).
The ‘urban cowgirl’ look continues into spring/summer 2020. Cowboy boots were seen on and off the runway at LFW this year. With Christopher Kane re-imagining the historical western wear look featuring knee-high cowboy boots with clear plastic patches filled with colourful liquid creating a vibrant artistic effect. This western trend seemed just as popular amongst the street style crowd who channelled their inner cowgirls by wearing their boots under floral dresses and tiered skirts. Take note, it’s time to giddy up into the cowgirl trend.
Sorbet hues- you'll look good enough to eat
Pastel colours have evolved into sweet sorbet shades for spring next year, offering a new take on feminine hues that will be key for apparel and accessory palettes for both men and women. Banana sorbet (like this shirt from 2nd Day) and tangerine hues were seen across LFW catwalks including Tibi and Jacquemus. Freshen up your palette with a pop of apple green in your outfit - we love these pieces from Samsøe Samsøe. It’s time to channel the citrus dessert vibe!
yellow - a signature spring shade
Yellow is THE colour of spring 2020. It was seen all over catwalks at LFW including Tory Burch, Pyer Moss and Christian Siriano. Yellow is always a popular spring shade, you have just got to pick the right shade of yellow that works for you. If in doubt, go for a soft yellow hue and pair it with some statement rings like these from Beho Studio. Whatever shade you choose, just make sure you get this sunny colour into your spring wardrobe asap.
Can you see my underwear? Oh good, you’re all set for s/s 2020. Designers are transforming underwear to outwear, across the catwalk there was a nod to this trend with exposed bandeaus and sequinned finishes spotted at Mark Fast and JW Anderson. If you’re not quite ready for wearing your bra over your tee, then go for sheer layers and think about that cute lace bra detailing like this gorgeous piece above, from Dora Larsen lingerie.
Nineties style is definitely back with a vengeance as we see the revival of the classic cargo trend. Hyper practical utilitarian style is set to take over next summer - think 90’s girl band All Saints at their peak. There were cargo pants seen across the catwalk as well as chic-cargo style dresses as seen at Margret Howell’s show. Think drawstring tie, loose fit trousers and large functional pockets. You need to strike the perfect balance between utilitarian, tailored and chic.
